After a windows update the other day, my computer restarted itself to a black screen that simply says "ntldr is missing press ctrl atl del to restart.
I've read some posts that say to use the xp disk to load the windows recovery console and use the prompts to fix it. When I press R it says no hard drive is detected. I've ran the diagnostics in Bios and the hard drive checks out just fine. What can I do from here? Stupidly I have a lot of data on this hard drive that I would like to get off if I can get it to boot again.
